I'm hoping to someday build a replica of Manhattan using Lego in a 125 gallon long tank. I just don't know how to light the little buildings from inside.

Hi, I seen on the net , that peaple were using styrofoam to make rocks and back rounds in freshwater tanks . When the the fake rock is carved and made it is then covered in grout , I never have tried this but it looks realy nice. The reason I say this , is you can have it hallow for swim threw's and lil windows for the lights to shine threw .

I would be concerned with water flow. Water trapped quickly becomes stagnant. If it's inside the blocks then I would worry about the water turning bad and if you have a walled in area be sure to put in something to force water to move. If you use them I would be sure they are sealed up well and install power heads strategically to keep the water moving.

I have Legos in mine that where a display at toysrus and my water and fish are perfect. And I did nothing to them befor except rinse them off. I used fishing line and decorations to anchor them so they look like there free floating. Click image for larger version

I would think there would be a floating issue. If you assemble the bricks outside the tank, would you not catch a little air in each brick? Though I can't see Lego being air tight so ... Maybe you would need to let the air out by putting the structure in upside down first. Let the air bleed out. Or am I over thinking this lol.

Here is an awesome Lego aquairum build that I found on another forum.
Oh, that's where it's from! I saw it on another website and I just fell in love.

Wow, I just realized I jumped into this conversation pretty late.
